iPhone 4 tops NetCom sales classification for 2011

Friday 13 January 2012 | 10:56 CET | News
Norwegian operator NetCom announced that Apple's iPhone 4 occupies the first position in its top 10 best selling handsets classification for 2011. Next in the classification were Samsung Galaxy S II, Apple iPhone 4S, ZTE Blade, Nokia N8, Sony Ericsson X10 mini pro, LG Optimus 2X, Sony Ericsson Arc, HTC Wildfire S, and HTC Desire HD. NetCom's sales statistics show that 54 percent of all the smartphones it sold in 2011 are running under Android OS, 40 percent are powered by iOS, while 7 percent are using Symbian. Only 0.3 percent of the sold smartphones are running under Microsoft's Windows Phone 7. However, NetCom predicts that the operating system from Microsoft will eat market share from both Android and iOS in 2012 as two new Nokia phones powered by WP7.5 Mango OS will be launched on 1 February, namely Nokia Lumia 800 and Nokia Lumia 710. According to a recent survey by NetCom, a third of respondents think Windows Phone OS is able to steal market share from both Android as well as iOS. Nearly 20 percent of respondents said they would consider buying a Windows Phone in 2012.
